I bought a new Pro Star Forged Aluminum rim from Weld Racing for my 1987 Buick Grand National 4 years ago to replace one that been bent due to curb damage. The other 3 rims are also Weld Pro Stars but were installed in 1991. The rim I bought 4 years ago developed cracks in the aluminum which left unreplaced would have led to complete failure according to Weld. The cracks were due to radial stress in the aluminum from everyday driving  and any impact or abuse according welds own engineer who examined the rim I sent back. I bought another rim to replace it with the understanding from Deanna Geagan in customer service that I would be refunded my money once they verified that the damage wasn't from abuse or impact. They did verify this at the cost of me sending the rim to them but none the less decided not to refund my money for the new rim instead offering me a $40 discount off the $190 rim, which I refused. [continued below]....

..... The most important aspect of this is that a simple google search shows that these rims commonly fail the exact same way mine did and further the fact that the other 3 from the early 90's are still going strong but the 4 year old one failed shows that their quality has diminished greatly. Weld Racing should disclose that their rims will crack and fail from normal driving.
